* It has taken me 3 weeks (so far) to clean up my Amos & Andy collection. By cleaning up, I mean I have removed (75 and counting) existing doubles as a result of mis-dated, mis-numbered and mis-titled episodes. Taking on the venture of re-listening to the first few lines of each episode, has enabled me to physically enter accurate 1st-Line information into the "Comments" section of each episode profile.
When I began this clean-up, I had no idea what a bunch of useless files I had been holding onto for far too long a period of time. Fortunately I had the fore-site not to upload the files before I checked them over. Thank You OTRRG for creating "First Lines" for me (and other fans) to turn to so that we can eliminate excess Amos & Andy repeat files (as well as other OTR show episode doubles) from the Web!
I admit it - I love Amos & Andy! The characters here are REAL, and I do a true Jelly-Belly laugh during each and every episode. The writers of this outstanding program were highly intelligent and HILARIOUS! They must have had an absolute blast sitting around making up the words to put into the mouths of all of these wonderful characters!!!
Again, I love this show; I know you will too. Please share!! OTR * def gp ddh
"A&A 1929-05-29 BOGUS EP ..." and "Aa1929-06-17385Bogus ..."
are redundant (and incomplete), so should be removed from this set
Also, "Aa1929-06-28394AmosOutOnBail ..." is repeated in "Aa1929-06-29395AmosAndyGoTo .."
"Aa1936-08-19000walterHouston ..." is wrong - his last name was "Huston"

Thank you to the uploader
I appreciate the ability to listen to these shows. I saw some on tv when I was a young girl living in San Francisco.

Get em before they're gone!
Hi dalanw, there are aprox 609 total Amos and Andy episodes so this is about half. I'd like to also thank the uploader for their efforts. I've been collecting the show since in cassette form and have been wanting to go through my collection but haven't found the time. I have about 759+ episodes which means I have hundreds of duplicates.
I have several missing shows and I can already see there are episodes here that I do not have so I'll get closer to completing my collection. But that en-tells screening the various shows to find out which is the better recording. I'd also like to get the equipment to transfer my A n A tapes to high end mp3 but I haven't been able to find the time for all this.
For what it's worth, Amos and Andy is an outstanding show.. Freeman and Charles intent wasn't to actually poke fun of any particular group and their character voices didn't differ much from their real-world voices. Mainly pitched higher or lower and Amos' had added rasp. The show was a riot, was very well written, over decades mind you, and employed dozens of African-American radio actors.
If you want these shows I'd suggest downloading them now, before they're gone! (removed) - Thanks again!
